In our wonderfully politically correct world there is always something daft that rears its head around the conker season. It might be a school banning them, or people breaking out safety glasses when playing conkers – I love it, it always makes me laugh.
But – they are only doing it on one large tree in the Meadows where someone got hurt last year – not on any others in Nottingham or even the immediate area.
I hate to tell them but won’t the kids just move elsewhere to throw sticks? Knocking them down is after all part of the fun!
Perhaps they should propose a ‘conkers season curfew’ – I am sure kids could be kept in for a few weeks until the conkers fall!
Come on – let the kids live!
